Not sure about that coop. I believe enlisted personnel paid the officers, and vice versa for the enlisted men/women. I seem to remember that Radar always paid the officers, I think...

Good question Sguigy!

Paymaster always gets paid first. Have to "check out" the procedure, right?

Well so far... JR you have 1/2 the answer. Radar read Hawkeye the entire regulation and it technically consisted of 2 things. In the round about way Jr. fan was right in the he was fully responsible.

That's about all I remember too, Jr. I thinking this question probably comes from the episode where the goat ate the money? There are a couple of eps that deal with payroll. I'm thinking you have to be of a certain rank, perhaps a minimum of Captain, and that it has to run in some kind of rotation, i.e., you can't have it be the same person more than x times in a row where x may be as low a 1, and you can't claim to have lost it because you're responsible for making sure everyone gets paid. The only thing that makes me thing of the rank and rotation possibilities is that when Hawkeye did it, he had to. It was his turn. I'm thinking he couldn't fob it off on a lower ranking person because the paymaster had to be a certain rank or higher and everyone else who held that rank had already done it and/or was busy that day.

This is running strictly on memory after a 16 hour work day, some sleep, and with cold pizza for breakfast. Now, time to floss and get ready to attack another day. :)

It just dawned on me that I first came here to post an answer to the Squigmeister's query. But then the news. :(

After realizing my bad, I forgot to post what I came here to post. So...

I beleive the regulations mainly state that the paymaster (Hawkeye)(?) is responsible for everyone's pay.

Sorry for the misinformation all. I could've sworn that was the episode.

Thanks for the correction 97, you da woman!

We have a winner. Congrats, Squigy!

You're right too, Tbucks. That's the ep. Hawkeye was on R&R when Trapper got the orders to go home.

Jr., can't believe this because you are the grand master, and you are off by one episode in this case. This is from the first episode of Season 4, "Welcome to Korea." It picks up right where "Abysinia Henry" leaves off and to me is also a classic episode. This two-part episode is my favorite of all the episodes -- and thus always a good place to look for the answer if I'm up. I've watched it way more times than I could ever count. Second best place to look is any season 4 episode because that's all I have on DVD. Now all I need to do is get the DVD player fixed. Can't just toss it because this DVD is stuck in it. :)

Dang! I thought I had it!

tbucks, this was a classic episode. 'Abyssinia, Henry'. It was the 72nd episode and the final episode of season 3. You'll most likely know, this episode included Henry Blake's departure, also. One of my faves!

Who has the next question, Squigy?

He went home. Wasn't that the episode where Hawkeye was stuck in surgery, or away from camp, and was pissed because he didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Trapper?

He drove Col Blake's jeep on two wheels thru the middle of camp, around musical instruments, with Radar's Teddy Bear sitting in the drivers seat with a shower towel under his bottom.

Only thing I remember about Tuttle is....that they made him a DRUID.

Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: [creating Tuttle's service record] Religion?

Army Capt. 'Trapper John' McIntyre: Atheist.

Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: I don't believe in atheism. Let's make him a Druid.

Cpl. Walter 'Radar' O'Reilly: What's that?

Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: They worship trees.

Cpl. Walter 'Radar' O'Reilly: Ah, a tree surgeon.

I was looking at tbuck's answer. Most of those tents had doors, and wood frames with the canvas thrown over. As a Naval Reservist, I was part of combat unit and our tents were just canvas, nothing wood but the poles.

I have no idea what Hawkeye says is different.

Oh, and by the way, there was vibraphonist Red Norvo, but he wasn't a comedian.

The only other two Reds that had anything to do with comedy back then was Red Buttons and Red Nichols (the latter was a band leader Red Nichols and his Five Pennies).

Hmmm, no, sorry 07, but Skelton does nothing for me. Don't get me wrong, in his day, he was one of the funniest comedians around. I rarely would miss his shows. In fact, I have most of his dvd's burnt from Netflix rentals (that were available) with a few still marked 'unknown'. That just means Netflix has it, but hasn't any idea when it can be delivered.

Anyway, I got off track there. The name I'm thinking of is on the tip of my tongue, but I just can't remember it. I think he did a bit in some sinking ship movie. Maybe not... Oh well. Maybe tonight. Maybe not.

Have a great day M*A*S*H*E*R's! Later

LOL Okay. I'll go again. And even though the jeep was Uncle Sam's, technically I think the answer would be it was stolen from Radar because he was the one who signed it out and was afraid it would come out of his check. Here's another question from a completely different episode.

According to Hawkeye, what was the only difference between a men's tent and a woman's tent?

You should have another shot, 97. I'm pretty certain the Jeep was stolen, but it wasn't BJ's Jeep ... actually, it belonged to Uncle Sam.


I was gonna guess his heart was stolen by a pin-up of Betty Grable.

Actually, on careful review, this is a BAD question because the item I'm looking for was actually stolen from Radar. Answer I was looking for was his ride back to camp, or the jeep for short. So bad question. Sorry. That's what I get for going on memory -- but the opening two eps of Season 4 are my faves. At least I remember something about them. Someone else want to ask one? Or shall I dig for a better question?

tbucks, you could be onto something but I was thinking he treated and not the one I'm looking for. As for Coop, the wind may have stolen his hat, but the answer I'm looking for was stolen before the wind got to him. This one could have two answers though. Hmmm.. research. Or can another pro step in? If his wallet was stolen at the airport, that would indeed make it his first thing stolen. If it was stolen at the bar, it's at least second. ;)
